We got approved!

Since our last appointment with the hematologist for our girls we have been waiting on approval to have Scarlett's cord blood banked for FREE for 5 years in case we need it due to Reese's IgA deficiency (and possibly Emma....labs pending). It is called  The Sibling Connection program through ViaCord which was suggested by the hematologist. Our cord blood banking kit should arrive tomorrow, which I will take to with me for delivery. An extra vial of blood will be taken from me prior to delivery and once Scarlett is born blood will be collected from her umbilical vein and sent off for processing and storage.
